Hi Steven :)

Yes I am looking to create advanced pad-like synths and complex basses, with trumpet-like filters.
I would like to be able to loop the points, basically choose where to sustain and begin note-off, the release should be changeable, so not just a single release point, but as many as needed. (some pads will evolve for about 20 seconds after note-off/release so it would be nice to have different volume levels, or cutoffs)
Also it should be possible to change the lenght of the envelope, would be nice if I could do that from the widget instead of the code.
Basically the reason I want this widget is because its so useful and a basic building block (of a modern synthesizer), if you want to be practical about it, you could also allow this widget to be used as a parametric EQ, then formant synthesis would be possible via midi. (perhaps I am asking for too much? :) hehe)

If you take a look at "blue" they have a pretty good widget which saves space on the screen, it is however missing the sustain/looping features so it is unusable to me, but I did like the idea.
blue also has a xy-pad, which also seems very useful as a widget.

Also, how can I create widgets? I would like to learn because from what I understand I can then export my synth via cabbage and make it crossplatform, or compile it as a VST for native linux support. 
I love this idea, I do not know if it works, I have not tried yet (I am very new to CSound). I would like to contribute with widgets but I do not know very much about programming etc :) I like making music and building synths (modular synths are my favorite!).

Thank!

Hi j4zzfunk (or doorstop),

I guess I mostly use just ADSR style envelopes for my instruments and
tend to use knobs for those.  The line widget should be usable if you
use it with linsegr, though I haven't tried it.  (Though, that
wouldn't quite be automatable to change in realtime).  Are you looking
to create envelopes that have a looped set of values during the
sustain, or want n-number of points before the sustain?  I may need to
create a new widget depending on what exactly you're looking for.

Thanks!
